As Andreas requested, I'm redirecting this discussion (triggered by bug
677054) to piuparts-devel.

Well, it would be nice to have some documentation to easily reproduce all the
tests you are running on the archive, even with packages that aren't uploaded
yet. This involves setting up a private repo and some wrapper scripts. I don't
know if such docs exist somewhere? I would be willing to help with that.

Obviously, it would be a great help with that to have all your scripts, even
those that aren't in git (yet).

Currently, it's quite hard for random developers to do the piuparts tests
themselves, especially before upload. If they would just have to run some
script on their binaries (and wait quite some time for all the tests), that
would be one less excuse for not being piuparts-clean :)
